Pantheon / Methods of Killing

Go To

Despite the subject matter, the House of Methods of Killing is probably the sanest and least obscene parts of the larger House of Slaughter. Accessed through a butcher's shop, there's a large collection of different blades, hammers and other weapons. Killing methods are tested on large slabs of meat, and it has a cold, sterile interior. Though that doesn't stop some of the gods there from being brutally violent.

Directly connected to the House of Murder & Assassination for obvious reasons. Those with a weak constitution should steer clear, this is still part of the House of Slaughter after all. Gallows Humor is common here.

    Brock Samson 
Brock Samson, The Mook Slaying God (The Walking Swedish Murder Machine, Super Kill-Guy, Franken-Mullet, Murderist Extraordinaire)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brock24.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Bowie knife
  • Theme Song: Assclamp!
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, barely
  • Portfolios: Terror Hero, Amazon Chaser, The Big Guy, Blood Knight, Disproportionate Retribution, Doesn't Like Guns, Heroic Comedic Sociopath, Hypercompetent Sidekick to Venture, Improbable Weapon User, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Knife Nut, Papa Wolf to Venture Bros., One-Man Army, Testosterone Poisoning
  • Domains: War, Destruction, Protection, Good
  • Allies: Kratos, Oberyn Martell, Ash Williams, The Heavy Weapons Guy, Sam & Max, Frank Castle/The Punisher, Guy Shishioh
  • Enemies: Any evil god that relies on mooks, Kano, The Enforcers, Shiro Tagachi , David Bowie
  • Rivals: Anastasia Cisnarova/The Baroness, The Undertaker, Red Sonja
  • Annoyed by: Claptrap
  • Odd Friendship: GLaDOS
  • With his legendary exploits in killing and maining minions, it was only a matter of time before Brock Samson ascended into the Pantheon as a God, having began as a follower of Guy Shishioh. His ability to slaughter puts him an a particularly prestigious position, both renowned and feared.
  • The morale of every mook of evil gods took a nosedive when word of his ascension came through. Melkor himself was forced to give more leeway to mook unions just to slow the number of mooks who quit their jobs.
    • His mere presence is enough for Cobra Commander to call a retreat as none of his minions are willing to face him.
    • Hates the Minions as much as any other mook, but is at a loss in how to deal with them; killing them would put him in a bad light for the child gods as well as the GUAG. This development pleases Melkor… if only the Minions were more competent in their duties.
    • As a response to the massive losses of their followers, the Enforcers have proposed an early warning system for Brock's presence. This got the surprise backing of Jackie Chan, who abhors Brock's high body count.
    • SHOCKER and HYDRA keep their mooks well away from him, as if they didn't have to deal with enough from the Kamen Riders and the Avengers.
  • Even if one is not a mook, there are a couple of things to avoid pissing him off. Do not threaten anyone under his protection. And ''don't ever try to run him down with a truck. Optimus Prime has made sure to keep himself at least a mile away from him as a result.
  • Despite his vicious nature, he did gradually come to care for his charges, the Venture Brothers. Any poor fool who thought kidnapping them would be a good idea would be in for the most gruesome death possible.
  • Why hasn't Brock Lesnar ascended to the Pantheon yet after killing the Undertaker's Streak? Because Samson squashes mooks so hard even Lesnar refused to get booked in a bout against him. However, the Undertaker is interested in booking a match with him some time. The two gods have similarly scared their competition silly.
  • He has shown to have a soft spot with women, especially with The Baroness. He admits she may be the closest woman he's loved since Molotov Cocktease. Various villains have started employing more female mooks in response.
  • With Red Sonja's ascension, Brock potentially sees the one woman that could match his desires without being a villain. Of course, he would have to defeat her in order to start dating, but that's a challenge Brock is willing to take.
  • Despite his extensive training record, he refrains from using guns, citing that killing mooks that way would be too way. He is fond of knifes in particular and is often kills legions of mooks with a single Bowie Knife.
    • Kano has expressed interest in his knife wielding skills, hoping to take his knife for a spin after he rips Brock's heart out.
  • Is annoyed that he had to be the last poker player to obtain godhood. Is especially annoyed he got beat out by Claptrap of all beings. At least now he gets to rib on him in his own temple.
    • Got a bit of information from Ash Williams about his ancestry, finding out that he is actually from Poland instead of Sweden. Still doesn't stop Brock from calling Ash a moron at times.
    • Is amused that Sam, a dog, is playing poker at a familiar table. He also wonders if he's a man who looks like a dog or a dog who can talk and walk like a man. That aside, he respects him and his partner Max for saving the world various times.
    • Probably the only god in the Pantheon who can tolerate GLaDOS' sense of dark humor.
    • Got together with Moxxi shortly after his ascension.
  • Kratos is pleased to have an ally with almost as much bloodlust as he does. Is often not that far from Brock whenever he's mowing down minions.
  • Is admired by Oberyn, both by his mastery of combat… and by the size of his pecs as well. Brock hasn't caught on the flirtation just yet, but many gods are convinced that the outcome won't end well…
  • Gets along well with a fellow mercenary called the Heavy Weapons Guy, though he downplays his concerns with his blood lust. Brock points out that mercenaries can enjoy their job and not be complete psychopaths.
  • One of his most avid supporters has been Frank Castle, one of the few gods who can match his brutality to mooks. The two often team up to take down mobsters.
  • Has a largely antagonistic relationship with David Bowie due to an incident Bowie may have pulled back in Berlin some time ago. However, given that in Brock's world, the Sovereign is actually an alien who took on Bowie's form, it's not known if Bowie acually did anything.
  • "You don't want to shoot me, boys. You know me. You know what I'll do to you if you do."

    Noob Saibot 
Noob Saibot, God of Fatalities (Bi-Han, The Original Sub-Zero, Sub-Zero I, Sub-Zero V, Boon Tobias)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/noob_6.png
Noob with his shadow clone (known as Saibot)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Troll Hammer.
  • Theme Song: "Noob Saibot's Theme" by AraabMuzik.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Names Taking Unfortunate Meanings With Time, Hammers, Memetic Mutation, Casting a Shadow, Cheap Death, Getting Drunk on the Dark Side, Painting It Black, Being the Cain to an Abel, Ex-Secret Characters
  • Domains: Darkness, Evil, Corruption, Kombat
  • Superiors: Father and Dante (Fullmetal Alchemist)
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Ambiguous Relationship: Tomas Vrbada/Smoke
  • Evil Counterpart to: Hakumen
  • Odd Friendship: Anub'arak
  • Opposes: Gamers (Because they keep calling him Noob)
  • Noob Saibot is one of several undead servants of the Netherrealm, with the power to manipulate darkness and even possesses more free will than his peers. Born as Bi-Han, the descendant of a family of cryomancers and the fifth to bear the name Sub-Zero, Bi-Han was one of the best assassins of the Lin Kuei clan, having carried several missions for them. He was key in stealing Shinnok's amulet after being hired by Quan Chi to do so (Of course, he was only manipulating him) and then gave it to Raiden. He was later one of the participants in the Mortal Kombat tournament, where he met his end at the hands of his long-time rival and member of the Shirai Ryu clan, Scorpion, after he mistakenly believed Sub-Zero to be the one responsable for killing his family. That was not the end of Bi-Han, reborn as Noob Saibot, he became one of Quan Chi's servants and fully embraced evil.
  • While he had been a pantheon member for a while, his position was dubious considering that the reason he was even a deity is because of his silly name and, fittingly, preferring to stay in the shadows. Noob Saibot would resurface later after he reminded everyone of why he is a serious threat and executing an opponent with his signature Spine Rip, one of the original Fatalities of his tenure as Sub-Zero and one of the reasons why the ESRB was created. Not to mention, his brutal finishers as Noob Saibot.
  • As you may be aware, he is not exactly proud of the name of his new identity, Noob having been associated with bad videogame players and that doesn't help considering he comes from a fighting game franchise. Worse, for the longest time it used to be his main claim to fame in the pantheon and a frequent target of mockery for others. That all changed later, though he developed a distate for gamers since they still keep calling him a Noob.
    • This is one of the many reasons he, strangely enough, related to Anub'arak. The nerubian traitor king unfortunately gets called "A Noob" by the same gamers that make fun of Noob Saibot. This is how the wraith managed to get close to the Scourge deities, being an undead wraith certainly fit with the interests of said group and his similarities with the Lich King Arthas certainly helped.
  • Turns out his brother Kuai Liang has taken up the mantle of Sub-Zero ever since Bi-Han's death, and while he did try to avenge him, he didn't go through with killing Scorpion and once both siblings reunited, Noob Saibot didn't even care about him and has tried to kill him since. While Kuai Liang did end becoming a revenant in the new timeline, he got better and returned to life, that said, reuniting once again with his brother in the pantheon after finding out he now works on his own, Sub-Zero decided to confront him. They relationship hasn't improved in the slightest.
    Noob Saibot: You disappoint me.
    Sub-Zero: The feeling is mutual, brother.
    Noob: Mother would be so proud.
  • If there is anyone that he hates as much as his brother, that would be Hanzo Hasashi, AKA Scorpion. The two have clashed numerous times in the past, Scorpion was the one responsible for killing him but Bi-Han is not entirely innocent as he killed Hanzo in the past. Being one of the reasons Bi-Han became Noob Saibot is something that Hasashi deeply regrets but the former Sub-Zero is beyond saving as he has fully embraced what he has become.
  • Being a wraith and having an affinity for shadow, Noob Saibot desires nothing but to plunge the pantheon into an era of darkness. This peaked the interest of certain particular deities who too share this goal like Chernabog, Nightmare Moon and Zs'skayr. Noob has no problem working for them as a field agent and from the shadows, having proved to be an excellent hitman and assassin for the ones in the shadows.
    • But not all that delve in the dark share his sentiment. Many of the good-aligned deities and some of the anti-heroes took issue with Noob Saibot's goals and firmly oppose him. One in particular was Jackie Estacado, being used to demon and having control of the darkness would make anyone think these two would work together but such is not the desire of Estacado, who views the ninja as just another mindless demon that should be put down.
    • While has no power over decay, he and SCP-106 are very chummy with each other. Similar background aside, the Old Man is the perfect ally for a world shrouded in darkness and death that Noob so desires.
  • Noob has been coined as the evil counterpart to Hakumen, as they are both beings who are the new selves of people blessed with ice powers. Many gods are placing bets on who would win between Hakumen and Noob, although the former is definitely the favorite between the two. Noob's emnity for Hakumen also extends to his other counterpart, Jin Kisaragi, particularly because some people have compared the then alive Bi-Han to Kisaragi's attitude. Several have also even said that Noob Saibot is basically what Jin would have become if he didn't receive the Character Development in his home universe.
  • Not many know how he even survived being thrown at the Soulnado by Nightwolf, but he gloats that "Quan Chi's creations are hard to kill". That said, he swore to get back at the native american if they paths ever cross again.
  • Sees potential in the darkness of Boruto Uzumaki and Sarada Uchiha's souls, making them prime converts to the clan he so desires to control. Obviously this made their respective apparents oppose Noob Saibot and lament that someone that used to be like them could have fallen so low. Shikamaru Nara especially takes problem with Bi-Han, having similar powersets is a huge factor in that.
  • While Lin Kuei are not ninjas, some of the latter did caught Noob Saibot's attention. The inherent darkness is Ayane's souls, particular her tainted heritage made her a prime candidate for corruption, trying time and time again to corrupt her into a being just like him. To her aid came Ryu Hayabusa, who drove off Bi-Han's attempts at manipulation by attempting to cut him down and while the wraith does respect Hayabusa's power, he believes he has wasted precious power by ignoring the Curse of Hatred.
  • Bi-Han is a dark reminder of what could happen to those that fall into darkness and embrace it. Ryu in particular is glad that he is never going to follow his path after having expelled the Dark Hado from his body, something that Noob finds dissapointing. The living essence of said power though shares goals with Bi-Han, namely that both share common enemies that will be destroyed, but the desire to kill and destroy everything has made it hard for the both to work together. Not that Noob has a problem with that, after all that behavior is what he seeks for his minions.
  • In previous timelines, Noob formed a partnership with the fellow Lin Kuei Smoke to create an army of cyber demons. Both have little recollection of said events but Smoke's revenant being controlled by his Enenra self has made it easier for both to partner and now that Noob Saibot works for Kronika, on Lord Shinnok's behalf, he could make this timeline version of events actually happen.
    • The moment he heard about cyber demons, the Doom Slayer instantly assumed that Noob was the mastermind behind his universe's Cyberdemon. He personally challenged the wraith to a fight and Noob was almost mutilated, since he didn't expect the space marine to be such a fearsome foe, forcing Noob to retreat and swear revenge on Doomguy for daring to attack him.
  • Some people think he sounds like Dr. Claw. Ironically this made Inspector Gadget believe he is actually the true self of Claw or at least an envoy of him and thus has set to defeat Noob Saibot for good. Bi-Han hardly takes him seriously.
  • While he doesn't miss his previous life one bit, he does lament having lost his cryomancer powers. The many residents of the House of Ice & Cold consider Bi-Han a disgrace for having ditched his old identity, not helped by Kuai Liang's presence in said house. Noob's only retort was to estate that death is the coldest ice that exists and that he would inflict it on all who oppose him.
  • Became one of the main enforcers of the newly established High Command, thanks in part to General Esdeath taking a liking to him and recruiting Noob for the job. He met her after she witnessed him ripping appart an opponent that challenged him to Mortal Kombat, impressed by his brutality she decided to test his abilities, and it helped that Noob Saibot used to have ice powers like her in the past. Noob Saibot has no true attachment to the Command's goals but he is content with obeying them so long as he benefits from them and he doesn't exactly feel out of place alongside the homunculi, in fact, his unique wraith properties inspired Father Homunculus to try and create another minion in Bi-Han's image.
  • "All is dark. All are shadows. Now i am become Death, Destroyer of Worlds."

    Vlad III (Nasuverse
Vlad III, God of Impalement (Vlad the Impaler, Uncle Vlad, Lancer of Black, EXTRA Vlad, Berserker, The Lord Impaler, The Executioner of Blood, Dracula)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/52_vlad_iii_berserker_4.png
His EXTRA self 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A heart impaled with black spears from almost all directions
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil, though could switch into Lawful Good.
  • Portfolio: Cold and Fair Rule, Impalement For Any Crimes, Kazikli Bey, Lance Battles, 'Not Actually' A Vampire, Demonic Defender of the State, Madness, War Leaders, Legend of Dracula
  • Domains: Slaughter, War, Vampirism (kind of)
  • Allies: Siegfried, Astolfo, Chiron, Alucard/Adrian Fahrenheight Tepes, Carmilla
  • Worthy Opponent: Karna, Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus
  • Complicated Relations: Dracula, Simon Belmont, Trevor Belmont, Sypha Belnades and Grant Danasty, Gabriel Belmont
  • Enemies: Amakusa Shirou Tokisada
  • Vlad the Impaler, one of the more brutal warlords throughout the ages, ruling over the domain of Wallachia. A brutal, yet fair ruler that protects its people, but anyone who crosses his law was doomed to die by a brutal impalement with their bodies displayed as an example. Some say he's the son of a dragon... but regardless, his impalement technique was legendary that he rose to the Pantheon...
    • However, his other legend is that of being the archetypical vampire, Dracula. Vlad was noted to despise that legend that was considered blasphemous at him, but Dracula's power was too great for a moment. After being summoned into into Chaldea and two separate Holy Grail Wars with different not-so-vampire aspects of him, Vlad has managed to strike and separate himself from Dracula. He acknowledged that perhaps the legend would continue to persist within him, but he will have control now. This is why his relations with Drac himself is a bit complicated.
    • And to his surprise, the one who resided within his throne was Mumkhar. Vlad was disgusted that such a Dirty Coward was in because "He impales a few people and died impaled." With that, he proceeded to show how scary his impalement could be, by showing him the full extent of Kazikli Bey. Sure, Mumkhar was not slaughtered thoroughly since that wasn't the Monado, but it hurted like hell and was mind-scarring enough that he fled for his life and relocated to another house, as Vlad finally sat on the throne that belonged to his.
  • As shown in his picture, the visage of Vlad tends to be unstable. At one point, he may be a calm, composed war commander; but in another hand, he could end up being a nutty crusader. Both also tend to shit-talk about each other. But as his experience in Chaldea attested, he could learn to make the two sides unite for a common cause.
  • Despite 'a little bit' coming to terms with his Vampire legend, Vlad still hates people who tramples others' honor for their own purposes, like his old master Darnic Prestone Yggdmillenia did. He promises that anyone seen doing that will receive the worst kind of impalement ever from all sides.
  • Has complicated relationship with the Belmont clan. He appreciated their way of vampire hunting and opposing Dracula, but because he's 'kind of' a vampire, and Holy spells hurt him badly, he can't get near them a lot of times.
  • After awhile hanging out in the Pantheon, remembering his Moon Cell Master, Lil' Ronnie, Vlad became curious about this thing that has a mascot similar to her, McDonald's. He paid a visit, bought some fried chickens, ate them, and thought it was pretty good. But he knows the dangers of fast food, and usually just restrains himself from getting obsessed to keep himself in shape. (It's better than blood, at least!)
  • On certain days, Vlad can be seen utilizing a gigantic boulder to run over those who got on his bad side. Though some aren't really sure if it's him since he really is a vampire, even turning into a bat. Not that helped against being run over by Sisyphus' boulder.

Lesser Gods

    Darius 
Darius, God of Bifurcating Foes (The Hand of Noxus, Killsteal the Champion, The Dunkmaster, DarDar)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/darius_original.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The flag of Noxus behind a bloody axe
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral with shades of Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Climbing the ranks one neck at a time, having sharp ends on his armor, having extra armor at the shoulders, fighting with the aid of a large axe, being a large leader, serving as the right hand for a higher power
  • Domains: Strength, Military
  • Allies: The whole House Noxus (so far, Draven and Katarina), Vergil, Lucifer
  • Enemies: Garen Crownguard along with many evil members in the House of Commerce and Leadership, Riven, Coco Reeve
  • Rivals: Defenders of the Ancients (Radiants and Dires). Axe serves as something of a Friendly Rival.
  • After finding out that his archenemy, Garen, had ascended to the Pantheon, he began to find any Noxian loyalists that he could find in order to prepare for a battle.
    • Darius has no personal issues with Garen - he thinks the man is a fool, following a meaningless code of "honor", but he doesn't have a burning hatred for him. He would relish killing Garen in battle though, proving Noxian strength triumphs over the most iconic image of Demacian values
  • He ascended to the ranks of the Gods after making a career of destroying many members of the League of Legends with the help of the Noxian Guillotine, a swift move that can slice through most matter as easy as a warm knife cuts through butter. Once he begins to turn his foes into vertical halves, there is not much stopping him.
  • Despite his stance on Might Makes Right, he has little tolerance for some of the more vile members in the House of Commerce and Leadership, since he considers them cowards who use corruption, wealth and influence as ways of gaining power instead of relying on strength and military force. This has cost him many potential allies.
    • That said, he has caught the eye of Lucifer who respects him for his dedication to his personal idea of power and authority. While Darius has made no move to join the GUAC yet, he has taken notice of this attention and considers the Lightbringer a potential ally in the ongoing conflict with Demacia.
  • Darius doesn't care for titles or privileges―he simply uses what power he attains in the service of Noxus. Similarly, he isn't a crazed, bloodthirsty maniac, contradicting what people would believe. He's more of a cold-blooded killer, moving through the battlefield with powerful, but precise, movements, striking with deadly force where it matters most. He takes pride in combat, but there's no primal bloodlust that he constantly needs to sate. Unpredictable sadists don't always make the best commanders.
  • He would appreciate if people didn't mention his brother back in Noxus. His constant attention-seeking is something that gets on his nerves.
  • A certain overweight individual from the mortal realms was outraged that he was not given this divine position, claiming that he deserved it more than Darius for how he once cut a man in half. Darius responded in the usual way for this claim.
  • There was once a massive battle between Demacia and Noxus, led by Garen and Darius respectively. This was the result.
  • Has recently found a Worthy Opponent / Friendly Rival in form of Axe, whereas Darius was surprised that there's someone with a skill that predated his Noxian Guillotine (the Culling Axe). They had a fight and recognized each other's strength, eventually forming quite a team, despite the usual rivalries between the Ancient Defenders and the Champions of Runeterra.
  • After seeing Katarina rose to the Pantheon, Darius FINALLY has a counter against Garen when the latter taunt him to 'eat his heart out' about the 'union of Champion of Runeterra and Defender of the Ancient in one house': By saying that the house of Noxus continue to add up members in the Pantheon, while Garen is the sole Demacian in the Pantheon.
    • When being noted that Riven is technically Noxian, Darius is quick to point out that she doesn't count. In fact, she counts for less, because a Noxian traitor is far worse than nothing at all. He's put his brother on the job of getting rid of her, but the fact that she's suddenly gotten access to numerous powerful deities to train with has made her far more of a menace than she was in life, and the job is taking longer than anticipated. He's working on increasing Noxian presence in the Pantheon to counter this.
    • He's later forced to take back those words when he saw the Demacian Crown Prince Jarvan IV made his way to the Pantheon. Fortunately, he managed to have a counter of an opposition for Champion-Hero-Under-One-Roof that was technically on his side: Strygwyr and Warwick. Technically, it stood more for Zaun, but Darius let that be due to the alliance between Noxus and Zaun.
  • With how he saw Vergil exemplifying Might Makes Right, Darius was quick to become friends with them, and encourages other Noxians to follow his example, citing that Vergil may as well be a honorary Noxian.
  • Is known as a controversial figure in the court of Basketball, because while he dunks like a master, he's known as being kind of rude and condescending kind of like his brother. Darius just said that that's his form of 'loosing up' when he's not being this super dedicated patriot of Noxus.
  • Don't teach him how to oink.
  • "A united Noxus could control the world - and would deserve to."

Mr. Mundy, God of Headshots (The Sniper, Mick Mundy, Mun-dee, Bruce, Cuntspam, Lucksman, Creditsman)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px_sniper.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A crosshair
  • Theme Music: "Magnum Force" by Lalo Schifrin.
  • Alignment: Originally Chaotic Neutral. Switches to Chaotic Good on your side, either cold-blooded or foul-mouthed Neutral Evil on the opposing side
  • Portfolio: Headshotting With A Sniper Rifle Or With A Bow, Mixture Of Cold Sniper And Friendly Sniper, Long-Range Fighter, Crazy-Prepared, Kukris, Prefers "Assassin" Than "Crazed Gunman", Throwing Piss At People, Hailing From Australia (Actually from New Zealand), Back from the Dead
  • Domains: Snipers, Rifles, Australians (subverted since he is from New Zealand)
  • Followers: Almost every single FPS character who rely on headshots.
  • High Priest: FPS Doug
  • Allies:
  • Odd Relationship with: Pudge the Butcher
  • Commonality Connection with: Clark Kent/Superman, Jack Ryan
  • "Professional Buddies" with: Nack/Fang the Sniper, Margaret Moonlight
  • Very Wary of: Shrek
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: The Pyro
  • Conflicting Opinion with: Shino Asada/Sinon (may border into Opposing or worse, Enemies), Mitsuzane Kureshima/Kamen Rider Ryugen and Shuichi Kitaoka/Kamen Rider Zolda
  • Enemies: Gray Mann, Merasmus, Monoculus and the HHH.
  • Opposed by: Dhuum
  • Rivals: Vash the Stampede, Caitlyn, Sniper Wolf, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Corvo Attano, Night Raid, Niko Bellic, Solid Snake, Gondar the Bounty Hunter, The Spy, Shay Patrick Cormac, Sylvanas Windunner.
  • Formerly a follower of Lockon Stratos, the Court of the Gods once looked at just what he can do. And when they found out just how many ways he can apply headshots on people (regular headshot from a Sniper Rifle, headshot from an arrow, headshotting multiple people with a single bullet, decapitation from a one, and blowing them to salsa with one), they realised just how good he was and ascended.
    • Is also the fourth of the mercs to ascend since he somehow spearheaded along with Pyro and Scout to search for Spy.
  • One of the first things he did after his ascension was obviously meet up with Lockon for a sniper session. Ever since the first time they did that, it has been a common sight for the two. They also met up with another duo: Yoko Littner and Garrus Vakarian. And lastly, they met up with archers Hawkeye and Green Arrow. Now all five (or six) of them are a team.
    • They however forgot one other sniper who ascended: Sniper Wolf. And for a good reason, she can't be friended nor reasoned with. Sniper did try to befriend her but he almost got himself killed when she tried choking him with her rifle. As a result he isn't willing to let her join the group.
    • Ever since they met up, they started teaching or guiding new ascended archers and snipers around the Pantheon. Namely: Nack/Fang the Sniper, Mana Tatsumiya, Yukari Takeba, Lynette Bishop, Caitlyn, Kardel Sharpeye, Ryoubi, Sergeant Cyrus, Duke Togo, Nova Terra, Agent 47 and Frank Castle/The Punisher. As of recent, there are a lot of snipers, and Mundy is lucky to be recognized among them.
    • Out of all the snipers, he's actually glad that his Valve-follower Kardel Sharpeye has ascended, now the two are out sniping either Team RED or The Defenders of the Ancients. But there is one thing he complains about: his HO HO HA HA laugh is making him cringe.
    • He has also gained the approval of Margaret Moonlight. Despite this, she prefers not to remember their first time meeting when he threw his "Jarate" onto her... To his credit, he did apologize and is trying to make amends to her for the incident, though some other snipers are speculating there is something more to his desires. For now, they both have their lips shut tight on the matter.
  • He along with Nack might be in some sort of business-partnership. Their professions match together and are also very viable with sniper rifles. However, the only reason why they aren't fully-fledged allies is because one of them will kill each other soon. Though they'll take their professional ideals while they can.
  • If anyone asks what this "jar-based karate" is, most gods suggest that they don't ask him further about that. No one wants more people throwing piss at others. On the other hand, he is willing to give anyone advice on acquiring said jar.
    • There was one time when he entered the House of Technology carrying a loaf of bread. Except that at that time there was a quarentine going on. Unware of said quarentine, he got the bread mutated and seeing it mutate, he placed it on the jar and left it since. Many assassins are very wary when they see him with this not because of the green liquid in it, but the monster that lurks in it.
  • There is also another sniper that Mundy does not want to talk about, and that would be Shino Asada. He thinks that, since she acquired her sniper status in the gaming realm and not the real world, she does not deserve the title itself. This has gotten into a strained relationship for the two and it seems that Mundy himself is already making rants about her ascension too.
    Mundy: And why the hell would she receive a "sniper" helm. She isn't one for real and ought to teach that faker a damn lesson about sniping.
    • The only reason why he isn't placing her on the list of enemies is because everyone thinks that "Conflicting Opinion" fits better. Except that it doesn't actually fit his criteria. And it's even worse when Sinon found out about Mundy's Cold Sniper tendencies especially when they are training against each other. Now the two are becoming enemies.
    • And to further worsen the situation, Sinon's friend is actually an extreme target towards Tavish DeGroot a.k.a The Demoman (though this has lessened grealty but she hasn't forgiven him). And since Mundy is an ally to the drunken cyclops, this has finally placed a nail to their friendly terms.
    • Mitsuzane Kureshima/Kamen Rider Ryugen and Shuichi Kitaoka/Kamen Rider Zolda, two of Sinon's close associates have also gotten attention of the said situation. Mundy however, has his sights towards Mitsuzane especially after hearing the tale of "Project: Alternate Gentaro". As such, he's waiting till any one of them strikes.
  • Give him a clear shot, and the element of surprise against those who can either shoot, catch and/or dodge the bullet, and he can kill almost any human god in the Pantheon with a single shot. Other kinds of creatures might give him a slight problem, though.
    • However, the only human that can actually dodge his bullets and aiming skills is non other than The Humanoid Typhoon himself, Vash the Stampede. He really sees him as a good target, if he wasn't spraying bullets everywhere while he's aiming.
  • Unlike the other mercs, he is the only one who can tolarate The Spy. The duo have some extreme deals to finish each other with. Its also known throughout the Pantheon that he is the only sniper who can outsmart and outmaneuver the Spy, despite other attempts from other snipers. And to further finalize the fact, he created a shield meant to fend off his backstabs. Oh, and his "jar of piss" will further put his misery.
    • That didn't stop the Spy from mocking his life:
  • There was one time when he attempted to hunt down for a certain ogre. Instead of meeting him in style, it gave him the biggest mindfuck he has ever seen.
  • He seems to have interesting thing going on with Clark Kent. Mainly because Clark's origins reminds him of his true origins, though without everyone being morons.
    • Things have gotten even more grim when they discovered some similarities with him and Jack Ryan. New Zealand, which was Mundy's birthplace, went on the same fate as Rapture, sunken below the sea.
  • Really doesn't know what to say about Pudge the Butcher. Mainly because he sounds like some one trying to sound like him, Australian accent and all. Sniper does respect that his Meat Hook can be counted as a form of aim-and-snipe-at-long-range, though not enough to be called a Sniper.
  • However, a few days after his ascension and his return from his world, he has changed his attitude albeit. Then he unexpectedly snapped and as a result from being killed by Classic!Sniper he attempted to kill every single one of his sniper bretheren. Almost everyone would have gotten insta-killed, if Lockon didn't interfere with Sniper very quick.
    • After some observation from the House of Mentalism, they were able to see his memory, It seems that the Classic Sniper not only killed him, but double tapped him to further give him a taste of death. He's lucky that Medic was able to revive him as soon as he saw his body.
      • Regarding his temporary death, he somehow wasn't affected by it heavily unlike most deities who have felt death. He even called it the first 12 hours of break he has ever had in his life. With that news spread, Sylvanas had been watching him after that because unlike her who underwent a full change after her resurrection, Mundy's death was just a simple "holiday" and wasn't affected so much unlike her.
      • He's also a bit mroe relaxed. As for why, turns out that he saw his parents back in heaven (his adopted ones.) While he initially wanted to stay and be with them, they expressed their newfound admiration in his work to sniping all the bad people left. It also removed his fear of death. He now knows what awaits him: a wonderful retirement. But professionals have standards, no downtime on the job just yet. While some try to point out this may have been a hallucination, the reveal of Scout also being temporarily dead amd seeig Heaven confirmed that Sniper did die and will go to heaven.
    • And much like the Medic himself, he has gotten into the hate-list of Dhuum himself. Mundy actually fears him for being a reminder of the Grim Reaper himself.
    • Implied to be one of the few who previously knew that Spy was Scout's father. Sniper withheld the info for professional reasons while also the fact it's something the Spy has to do. For the most part, Scout did not press him on the info, though both did talk about their shared experienced in heaven.
  • "Be polite. Be efficient. Have a plan to kill everyone you meet."

    Pudge 
Pudge, God of Butchers (The Butcher)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pudge_4646.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Meat Hook in front of several meats in display. Human meats.
  • Theme song: "I Am Pudge" by Miracle of Sound
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: The Butcher Of Men, Pulling People In With His Meat Hook, Dead Fat Bastard, Damaging Self When Casting Something To The Point Of Suicide, Yelling Loud "FRESH MEATS!!!", Visceral Bad Guys, 'Australian' Accent
  • Domains: Hooks, Meat, Combat, War
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: The Champions of Runeterra.
  • All was well in the Pantheon when suddenly there's someone pulling Kenny McCormick got caught in a meat hook and was heard screaming of being cleaved. Whatever attempts of people trying to yell "Oh my God, they killed Kenny!" "You bastard!" was drowned with the scream "HA HA!! FRESH MEAT!!". Though the Radiants knew that Kenny would be okay, they know this can only mean one thing: Pudge the Butcher has entered the Pantheon and the Dires has gotten themselves one more member in the divine Pantheon.
    • in the Fields of Endless Carnage, where corpses cannot decompose or decay, Pudge had the important job of disemboweling and dismembering up corpses to ensure that the carrion birds could devour them. However, after a long time of butchering, Pudge himself wanted to try just one taste, which escalated quickly into a desire of devouring entire corpses, quickly turning him into the obese and rotting monster that he is. The Shopkeeper is willing to tell the story to those who're curious.
  • The fatter Pudge gets, the more dangerous and sturdy he becomes. Where do you think those fats came from? It's from any beings he butchered and consumed himself.
  • Despite his job, he's still pretty okay with butchering animals and serving food. It's just that everyone is too scared to invite him to any normal party.
  • His Meat Hook drag is one of the most feared thing in the Pantheon, with Scorpion himself saying it's a potent weapon based on his spear. However, Pudge can occasionally be seen pouting, because any time he missed, he's going to hear all those insulting "LOL NOOB PUDGE".
  • Don't ask why he's got this sudden Australian accent despite not knowing what this 'Australia' is. At the very least, it seems that The Spy seems to recognize that...
    • When The Sniper ascended, Pudge was confused as to why Mr. Mundy has a similar voice, down to the accent. Pudge does respect the Sniper's sniping skills, viewing it as some kind of "Hook immediately from any distance" kind of hooking, just without the actual hooking.
  • Naturally, due to his rotting body, his house is notorious to be amongst the stinkiest house in the Pantheon.
  • It was actually rumored that his high priest used to be a certain creature called Devourer. But when Pudge found out that all it did was just eating, not butchering, he ended up making the finest meat out of that creature and ate it.
  • In spite of his 'junior' status compared to Sanctuary's Butcher, who, right now, stay as his High Priest, Pudge held his throne for the fact that he's more lucid and having his own sentience instead of being a mindless beast.
    • And when said Demon ascended, people thought that said Butcher would try to take the title for himself. But it turned out that they became really good friends. You Can Panic Now
  • "Oh, a battlefield is truly a wonderland!"

Demigods

    Charles-Henri Sanson 
Charles-Henri Sanson, God of Decapitation (Chevalier Charles-Henri Sanson de Longva, The Great Sanson, Monsieur de Paris, The High Executioner of France, The Angel of Death, The Grim Reaper, Assassin, Chopper)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/assassinsangostage1.png
Pre-Servant Sanson 
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: Sanson Family's Crest
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil (to others. He considers himself to be Lawful Neutral)
  • Portfolio: Preference for Beheading for Execution Method, Comes From a Long Line of Executioners, Practitioner of Medicine, Skilful With A Sword, Prays for God for His Forgiveness, Hated and Feared by Others
  • Domains: Executioners, Guillotine, Medicine, Family, Fear
  • Allies: Eiki Shiki, Sonia Nevermind (?), Mami Tomoe, Ned Stark, Ikaruga, Murasame
  • Enemies: YHVH, The Pyramid Head, The Dark Judges, Konrad Curze, Monokuma and his Mastermind, The Queen of Hearts
  • Dislikes: Draven
  • Opposed by: Chevalier d'Eon
  • The fourth head of Sanson family, Charles-Henri is one of history's most famous executioners, known for carrying nearly 3000 executions, including that of king Louis XVI. And while he was not the one who invented the guillotine, he was one of people who ensured that it would be put in use due of his preference to quick and painless death.
  • After he ascended to the Pantheon, the executioner who has already ascended to the Throne of Heroes got a delightful flood of memories from the times he was still alive, and his idealism during those times. He also wonders why he was so obsessed with Marie Antoinette since he was not the one who killed hernote . When he heard that Mozart was in the Pantheon, he told him that he doesn't need to think about him when it comes to Marie Antoinette. This is especially enforced with him stepping in when her sister started to have some touchy time with Marie, so her obsession with her would seem hypocritical.
    • Speaking of musicians, he is disappointed that neither Bach nor Christoph Willibald Gluck isn't in the Pantheon, as he adores their music. He himself is also a good violist and cello player.
  • He doesn't have that much praise forwards Darius, who considers his line of executions just too gruesome. He also says that Darius doesn't seem to realize what "guillotine" means due of his "Noxian Guillotine" technique. However, he thinks that Draven is even worse of an excuse of an executioner, saying that he is like his younger sister Marie if she was even more crazy.
    • He also really dislikes Pyramid Head as he thinks that he is manifestation of what the common folk thinks of executioners.
  • Generally put, he has a really bad reputations alongside other people, as they think he is some sort of sadistic angel of death who enjoys killing people. In reality, he is the polar opposite of that idea. Originally, he was a fragile boy didn't even want to become executioner, only accepting the role when it was the only option he had if he wants to be accepted in his family and only really became confident man when he ascended to "manhood" (as in, had sex with Marie-Jeanne Bécu), and honestly wished for a day when there were no need for further executions. And even then, he tried his best to end the lives of those he killed as quickly and painlessly as possible. If you really had to say he was evil, then think of him as Necessarily Evil, as if there are no executioners, then who will carry out people's punishments? He is no different from a soldier following the nation. He did have his slippery slopes, especially with her sister, though.
  • Besides his profession, he is a skilful swordsman, as he had to carry out executions with a sword, and is also a doctor, as his family studied human anatomy and pharmacy for their line of work. He is willing to help people free of charge, though he only has knowledge of 18th century French medicine.
    • Speaking of his swordsmanship, some deities wonder what is up with his T-shaped claymore thing. He says that it is an adaptive version of Executioner's Sword, and that the extra weight in it helps him delivering more decisive blows, even for tougher foes. He is also seen carrying a small sword, mainly when he is intending to duelling with someone. The said small sword might actually be a pistol sword, if he thinks he needs it.
  • As someone who commonly asks God for forgiveness and to send the dead to Heave, he detests YHVH, as there is no way he would give his prayers to someone who would most likely make him carry out executions on innocent people. He is more confrontable with Eiki, as he believes that she can make the right judgements. Eiki also sees the true nature of Sanson beyond the "Grim Reaper" reputation he has.
    • One thing to note is that he only really takes judgements through Eiki, and any executions orders need to be due of her judgement. He does not trust House of Justice due of how warped and conflicting the whole House can be. One of biggest examples he makes is Konrad Curze. While he can't completely disagree with him as the whole point of Public Executions is to make a point, mass slaughter will NOT do any good to anyone.
  • Besides what you might think, he got rather close to Mami Tomoe due of him sympathizing with what happened to her. Same can be said about Ned Stark.
  • For his surprise, he actually got some attention from Sonia Nevermind, as she for one thinks that his think is sort of creepily cool. He... appreciates the compliments, supposedly.
    • However, through her she learned quite a bit about Monokuma and the so-called Mastermind and their execution methods. Needless to say, he is less than amused of their outright ridiculous and cruel ways.
  • There was one time when Ryouna came to him and willingly asked him to bring her pain she couldn't imagine normal person would. He first refused the offer, as he will not harm innocent people, and he is no torturer. However, when Ryouna brought up "écartèlement", he actually got mad, saying she should never bring that event up.
  • Is really, really annoyed by Queen of Hearts, as her constant demand for decapitation gives him a headache. He has said to her that if she keeps that up, she's the one going onto the chopping board.
  • Rumoured to be hearing voices of all the people who have died by his hands, though it is bit of a deep secret he keeps to himself. Though his former master did convince him that what he has done was just and they are reminder of what would happen if his justice would waver.
  • Amusingly enough, he seemed to have gotten some help from a certain Assassin on putting the guillotine into use. Though he wonders why Animus seemed to have imagined him as a stereotypical executioner. Or if the whole Animus is inconsistent with his looks.
  • He has some regards forwards Ikaruga for picking up her adoptive family's line of duty, even if the line of duty is rather gruesome in his opinion. And while he has some pity forwards Murasame, he can't help but to be reminded of his sister for better or worse. At least he did accept his role and got a good position for himself rather than rebel to the very end.
  • Doesn't really want to be worshipped since he doesn't want to make a religion out of this.
